The Bolshoi Theatre, Big rehearsal hall (Moscow)

  • 2005-2011
  • Square:
    1200m2
  • Location:
    Russia, Moscow City
  • Client:
    Direkciya po stroitelstvu, remontu i rekonstrukcii Minkultury RF
  • Architects:
    OAO «Kurortproekt», MOSPROEKT-2, Muller BBM, Akustik Group
  • General contractor:
    ZAO «SUIproekt»
The Bolshoi Theatre asked us to develop turn-key solution for the rehearsal hall. Although it’s not the biggest room we have ever redesigned, it has some interesting issues. Orchestra pit and scene cause impact noise and we chose ZIPS Module floor panels to isolate rehearsal hall from adjacent rooms and spaces. The hall has big open space and it’s important to make sound waves spread in right directions. Ceiling was equipped with sound diffusers. We also must be sure waves are absorbed before it can create echo in the room. Echo effect in such big room will just destroy all the acoustics. We installed Heradesign sound absorbing panels on the walls around the hall. Ceiling of technical space under the scene was covered with Gyptone panels.
